Water is a limited resource

4th graders are learning about the water cycle in science this quarter and we were surprised to learn how little fresh water is available to us on earth. We will be exploring the continuous movement of water between the earth and atmosphere as well as how moving water helps shape the earth's surface. We will map the school grounds for evidence of erosion, cracking, and depressions and will study maps to learn about our watershed. We will be experimenting with different soil types, vegetation cover, and erosion, and learning the importance of taking care of our watershed and land.
